What is an I.D Camp?

UBC is proud to announce identification camp dates for the 2020 UBC Junior Thunderbirds Spring Hockey Program! Being hosted on Friday October 25, 2019, all hockey players are welcome to attend.

An I.D camp is a way for the UBC Jr. Thunderbirds to assess interest in particular age groups. An I.D camp provides players the opportunity to showcase themselves for Jr. Thunderbirds coaches, and potentially be offered a letter of intent at the conclusion of camp to play in the 2019 spring hockey season.

Cost of ID Camp: $40
What’s Included? The ID Camp includes 1.5 hours of ice time, and an evaluation upon request.

How many teams will the Jr. Thunderbirds have next season?

For the 2020 season, we are recruiting for the following teams:

  • 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006
  • 2011/2010 Female, 2009/2008 Female

Visit the UBC Doug Mitchell Thunderbirds Sports Centre Proshop, and one of our friendly staff will help you process your registration.

How many roster spots are available per team?

The UBC Jr. Thunderbirds operates with a retention program from previous seasons, so a skeleton of a roster in a birth year will already be in place prior to the camp. Participants of the I.D camp will include those who are looking to fill some of the vacant roster spots in a certain birth year, and returning players from the previous season.

OK! We’re in! Where is it?

The Jr. Thunderbirds I.D Camp will be hosted at the Doug Mitchell Thunderbirds Sports Centre and will be conducted by former UBC Junior Thunderbird coaches. Evaluations will be done by the director of UBC Junior Thunderbirds, and associate coaches of the program. All participants will be contacted by email with results of their camp. The entirety of each team will not be picked at the time of this evaluation; and as such, no skaters will be formally released.

There is a 1-week period following the camp for face to face meetings, at the request of the skater.

When is the Camp?

An itinerary will be sent out on Friday, October 25, 2019 prior to the I.D camp. This will include your ice time, sign-in information and other relevant camp information. Dependent on numbers, the I.D camp for any age group will likely be completed by 1:00PM – please set aside time in the morning until 1:00PM to account for your potential schedule.

Questions? Please feel free to contact program coordinator, Mike Nardi at michael.nardi@ubc.ca or by phone at 604-827-4936. See you on the ice!
